I bought this truck as a daily driver. I travel a lot for work, so I drive mostly state highways. I do drive many rough country dirt & lease roads getting to drilling rig locations.
Haven't thought of a good one, yet - But so far, I'm referring to her as "Xterra Patrick

A 4x4 is pretty much a requirement to get where I need to go. Also, I'm an avid hunter & driving across a pasture or field to load up quarry/gear is a regular occurrence. After my Land Rover Disco I died, I decided on another SUV vs a pickup. The 2nd gen Xterras really caught my eye & I found this one for a good price as it needed a few issues fixed (see future projects list) that are pretty minor. I'm loving it. I've owned nothing but trucks since I was 16. This is my 3rd SUV, and my 2nd favorite (still a Rover boy at heart). The future mods aren't going to be super-wicked-awesome-sauce, but will be practical with a little coolness. We all want a nice looking truck, right?
It won't be the baddest X on the trail, but she'll still get good mileage & a comfortable ride.
